Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
Preliminary Operating Data and Unaudited Financial Information
On April 26, 2019, American Renal Holdings Inc. (“ARH”), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) to its Credit Agreement, dated June 22, 2017 (the “Credit Agreement”). As required by the Amendment, the Company is providing certain preliminary operating data and unaudited balance sheet information as of June 30, 2019.
Preliminary Operating Data for Second Quarter 2019
As of June 30, 2019, the Company provided services at 245 outpatient dialysis clinics serving 17,138 patients, compared to 233 outpatient dialysis clinics serving 16,018 patients as of June 30, 2018.
Clinic Activity: During the second quarter of 2019, the Company opened two de novo clinics. Subsequent to the end of the second quarter, in July, the Company sold two dialysis clinics.
Treatment Volume and Mix: Total dialysis treatments for the second quarter of 2019 were 614,844, representing an increase of 7.3% over the second quarter of 2018. Non-acquired treatment growth was 5.1%, and acquired treatment growth was 2.2% for the second quarter of 2019. Second quarter 2019 normalized total treatment growth was 7.9%, and normalized non-acquired treatment growth was 5.6% as compared to the prior year period.
The following table summarizes the percentage of total dialysis treatments performed by payor source for the periods indicated.
Three Months Ended June 30,
Percentage of Treatments by Payor:
Medicare and Medicare Advantage
Commercial and other (1)
Medicaid and Managed Medicaid
Principally commercial insurance companies and also includes the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (“VA”). Treatments accounted for by Affordable Care Act-compliant plans were approximately 1% in both quarters ended June 30, 2019 and 2018. Treatments accounted for by VA plans were 2.8% and 2.5% in the quarters ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
Other sources of revenues include hospitals and patient self-pay. “Patient self-pay” revenues consist of payments received directly from patients who are either uninsured or self-pay for a portion of the bill.
The percentage of treatments by payor source does not necessarily correlate with our results of operations or margins in any given period because of a number of other factors, including the effect of the difference in rates per treatment associated with each payor.
Preliminary Unaudited Balance Sheet Information
As previously disclosed, the Audit Committee (the “Audit Committee”) of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company has been conducting an examination of the Company’s revenue recognition methodology and related accounting matters, such as internal control over financial reporting related to revenue recognition and related matters. In addition, on March 27, 2019, the Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “March 27 Form 8-K”) that, among other things, described the Board’s determination that the Company’s previously issued consolidated financial statements and other financial data for certain prior fiscal periods identified therein should be restated and should no longer be relied upon. The Company is working diligently to complete the restatement described in the March 27 Form 8-K.
Neither the Board nor the Audit Committee has completed a review of the Company’s financial condition or results of operations as of and for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 or the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019. In addition, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm has not completed its audit of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations as of and for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 or audited, reviewed or compiled, examined or performed any procedures with respect to the Company’s financial condition or results of operations as of and for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019, nor have they expressed any opinion or any other form of assurance on the estimates set forth below.
The information set forth below should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company’s financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP, which will be available only after the Company files its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (the “2018 Form 10-K”), its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2019 (the “Q1 Form 10-Q”) and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019 (the “Q2 Form 10-Q”). These estimates are forward-looking statements and are not guarantees of the financial condition or results of operations as of and for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019. Actual results may differ materially from those described herein.
The following table sets forth selected preliminary, unaudited balance sheet information as of June 30, 2019.
As of June 30, 2019

Conference Call for Interested Investors and Other Parties
The Company will host a conference call on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) to review the preliminary Q2 2019 operating data and balance sheet information referenced above. The conference call can be accessed live over the phone by dialing (877) 407-8029, or for international callers (201) 689-8029. For those who cannot listen to the live broadcast, a replay will be available and can be accessed by dialing (877) 660-6853, or for international callers (201) 612-7415. The conference ID for the live call and the replay is 13683473.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We present Adjusted owned net debt above because we believe it is a useful metric to evaluate the Company’s share of interests in the cash on our consolidated balance sheet and the debt of the Company. “Adjusted owned net debt” is defined as debt (other than clinic-level debt) plus clinic-level debt guaranteed by our wholly owned subsidiaries less unamortized debt discounts and fees less cash (other than clinic-level cash) less the Company’s pro rata interest in clinic-level cash.
As provided in General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Item 2.02 shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, as amended, nor shall it be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K that are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding the number of clinics anticipated to be added, the Audit Committee’s review and related matters and the preliminary operating data and unaudited financial information, are based upon currently available information, operating plans and projections about future events and trends. Terminology such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “contemplate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “intend,” “may,” “objective,” “outlook,” “plan,” “potential,” “project,” “seek,” “should,” “strategy,” “target” or “will” or variations of such words or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain such terms. Forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted in such forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include: that the Audit Committee’s review of the matters described above is ongoing, including with respect to the amounts at issue and the periods to which they relate; that the Audit Committee’s review of the matters described above may take longer to complete than currently anticipated; that the Company may take longer to file its 2018 Form 10-K, Q1 Form 10-Q and Q2 Form 10-Q than currently anticipated; that the 2018 Form 10-K, the Q1 Form 10-Q and the Q2 Form 10-Q are expected to include restatements of the Company’s financial statements for prior periods; and that the Company expects to report one or more material weaknesses in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and to conclude that its disclosure controls and procedures required by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 were not effective.
For additional information and other factors that could cause the Company’s actual results to materially differ from those set forth herein, please see the Company’s filings with the SEC, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 filed with the SEC and subsequent reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
